Q: How do you describe your driving?
A: I keep my eyes on the road – I drive K53-style.
Q: Have you ever been fined?
A: I drive to avoid being fined. I am the captain when I’m driving which makes my vehicle an example on the road.
Q: Does it have a name?
A: I call my wheels Baby Girl because she’s a big, playful and bubbly girl.
Q: When did you buy Baby Girl?
A: In 2017.
Q: Is she your first baby?
A: No, I also own a white Toyota Tazz.
Q: Why do you like white?
A: The colour reminds me of my old school days. I liked how my white shirts contrasted with my dark complexion.
Q: Why do you love her?
A: She’s comfortable and has a good fuel economy – which I really need, considering how badly the petrol price is digging into our pockets.
Q: What features do you like?
A: The interior makes me happy when I’m cruising around.
Q: Did you change anything?
A: No, she’s perfect as is.
Q: How far have you travelled?
A: I have to many places including Cape Town, Durban, Pietermaritzburg and Parys.
Q: Is she your dream car?
A: No, that is a VW Golf R.
Q: What do think about other road users?
A: Drivers who speed ekasi because law enforcement is flexible. Kasi traffic needs to be as strict as it is in town. This is why so many die on our roads.
